Congratulations are in order for Hilaria Baldwin and her husband, Alec. The first-time mama welcomed a daughter into the world today, tweeting, “We are overjoyed to announce the birth of our daughter. She is absolutely perfect.”

As for their little girl’s moniker? The duo decided on Carmen Gabriela Baldwin and we love it! The name, though it’s a traditional, classic Spanish name, feels fresh and modern, unique enough to survive the zany world of celebrity baby names yet not too far-out-of-the-box that it leaves you scratching your head. Added bonus? It also flows together beautifully with big sister Ireland Baldwin, who is doting daddy Alec’s daughter from a previous relationship.

After announcing that they were expecting, Alec admitted that he was looking forward to being a stay-at-home daddy, saying, “My dream is to be home with the baby, standing in the doorway, saying goodbye to Mommy. Mommy is going to work now. Bye Mommy… don’t work too hard!” And it looks like daddy got his wish! Now that he’s got two daughters to look after, he sure is going to have his hands full!

Congratulations to the happy family on the arrival of little Carmen! We can wait to meet your sweet little bundle! 

Did you wait a few years before deciding to have more children?
